Both Alexander Semin and Matt Bradley, who have missed the last seven and 13 games with a lower body injury and broken finger, respectively, are taking part in the Capitals' morning skate at KCI but Coach Bruce Boudreau said he doesn't anticipate them returning to the lineup until after the NHL's all star break.
Boudreau said the same of Tom Poti, who skated before the rest of the group, and Michal Neuvirth.
"The all star break, after that is still a week away. They might make a lot of improvement by then," Boudreau said. "I'm thinking sometime after [the all star break], whether it's right after that or a week after that they'll be back."
More to come.
